Vacas (1992) - Details

"A historical epic-cum-pastoral romance charting the twisted fate of two families living close together in the basque country. Medem's trenchant, daring directorial debut cuts through the decades like an axe. Captured at moments of crisis and decision, his characters are forced to confront the precariousness of their rural existence and the great black hole of their own mortality. An exquisitely visceral film." (Time out)
